Constance Hall is taking a stand against her trolls. The Perth mummy blogger posted a nude picture of herself on Instagram after she was recently fat shamed. 'I was told that my weight had become an issue and my fat rolls were disgusting,' Constance wrote. Constance said that at first she was upset, but then she started to wonder what exactly a fat roll even was. 'Fat doesn't roll around on our body,' she said. 'It grows in lumps and we are constantly being told where those lumps should reside.'
Girls at all Victoria state schools will no longer be forced to wear dresses and skirts, and instead will be given the choice of shorts or pants as well. Education Minister James Merlino said the changes make 'common sense' and that schools had to provide options 'as far as practicable'. 'It's a relatively minor change to ensure that our expectation is that every school does provide the option of shorts and pants for girls,' Merlino told 3AW on Wednesday.
You're never too young to get pampered, at least if you have access to Australia's very first baby spa. And a new video from Baby Spa Perth shows just how calm and peaceful babies can be while they enjoy some massages and hydrotherapy. The adorable clip features tots smiling peacefully as they enjoy a dip in the pool or a nice rub-down. Two babies curiously look at each other in the water, where they calmly float with the help of a flotation device - dubbed the Bubby - that rings around their neck.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
